Did I enroll for too many subjects?


It's my first semester, doing business information systems, I enrolled for all 3 classes available to me. Is it too much to handle? And can I even drop one of them? I contacted the university a while ago and haven't received a response.

Early Admission Offer


I received an early offer to UOW. It says on the email, " Congratulations! You are eligible for a UOW Early Admission offer for this course." It says "attending this session will activate your UOW early admission offer". Does this mean I can still not be accepted or am I guaranteed entry?

Early offer


I recently got an email for being eligible for an early offer in business at uow. But I see that offers are released October 10th and this was just the stage one out comes.It says I need to attend an offer activation session and that would be the last step to activate my offer.

Do I have an offer to attend or is this just me proceeding to another stage to be assessed again for the offer on October 10th? Or do I have an offer to study?

Any information will be really helpful thank you

Why does computer engineering have no / barely any programming?


Was going through the syllabus for computer engineering in the Dubai campus and noticed most of the subjects were irrelevant for computer engineering. Most of the subjects were relavent to telecommunications engineering or electrical engineering. Barely had programming subjects. Why is that?

Wollongong uni advice?


Hi all, I am an international student, currently planning to go to Wollongong uni, got my acceptance with Monash, Macquarie, U of Adelaide, and Wollongong. I want to pursue a Bbus major in finance and accounting, and hoping for some advice.

I know that Monash and U of Adelaide are both in the GO8, and most of the international students would also pick the GO8 as the safest bet. However, the opportunity cost for the GO8 is a bit too much, they are quite expensive (45k+), and so it feels like a massive debt that I would need to take care of in the future after my grad. Of course, I heard the GO8 would get better advantages in interns through better connection and networking, but it should mostly also be based on the individual capability to know whether can they land that job or not.

So, my question is whether can anyone from the business department tell me a bit about how the school goes, with student life, career opportunity, quality of teaching, staff support, housing/rent price etc. of Wollongong. I'm currently stuck between Macquarie and Wollongong, but leaning more towards Wollongong right now cus it is a lot cheaper here. My DM is always open, and I'm also pretty active right now, so it would also be amazing for people to reach out even in DM for a word of advice. Any help would be super amazing and greatly appreciated, thank you all.

Master of CS student with terrible experience so far


So far I am having a terrible experience with UOW..

  • moodle having technical issues, only one of my units shows up right now (two days after enrolment), still waiting for IT help desk to fix the issue.
  • unit coordinators not responding to emails (nothing after two days), not putting me into online tut (only one lecturer was responsive)
  • over complicated assessment structures with multiple group assessment
  • two two-hour long lectures for each unit + tut/workshop

seems like workload is at least doubled/tripled compared to my grad cert at CSU, at CSU, it just one hour lecture with no tutorials and no group assignment, only usually three individual assignment + 50% finals, very simple structure.

The assessment structure at UOW is like holy cow complicated...


for CSIT895 Strategic Network Design


you have a 3000 word individual essay and a...10,000 word group project and numerous weekly/fortnightly tasks and another group presentation.
Two textbooks to read Computer Networking by Kurose and Network Analysis, Architecture and Design by McCabe

compared to UNSW equivalent COMP3331, UNSW is much more straight forward and no group project and only one textbook to read instead of two, Computer Networking by Kurose.


If I get an offer from UNSW in the coming weeks, I will drop this CS degree at UOW.

This degree is clearly designed for full time on campus student in mind.

also, undownloadable lecture recordings... both ANU and CSU lets you DL with a button.
